Early Achievers 4-H Helps Their Community
Kudos to ISU Extension and Outreach-Sac County Early Achievers 4-H Club for assembling meal bags and delivering them to the Early Sacred Heart Church in Early, Iowa.
Early Achievers 4-H was was one of 40 student-based organizations that participated in the Ignite the Spirit program offered by Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation.
Along with the pork loin, these young leaders provided fixings for stuffing, a pasta side, au gratin potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet corn, fruit, mac and cheese, Jell-O, corn bread and a brownie mix.
All 24 bags were donated to the food pantry, which serves numerous families throughout Sac County.
Ignite the Spirit is an extension of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation’s Operation Christmas Meal program and is aimed at increasing awareness of hunger locally and igniting the spirit of service by giving local student groups the tools—pork!—to help even more families during the holiday season.
As part of the program, FFA chapters and 4-H clubs also receive event kits with aprons and masks along with a check for $250 to purchase additional food for the meal.
